Fear and Creativity: Finding Your Craft

Sunday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 2
110 E 2nd St


Have you found your craft? Or are you moving too fast to notice?

Fear can propel us forward or hold us back. Failure, rejection, and the unknown can keep us in our comfort zones with a false sense of satisfaction. Spiritual growth comes from conquering fear and pursing your true calling.

We're plugged in 24/7, but are we connected to our inner self? Beyond the digital noise from our multiple screens and streams of information, a new definition of meaningfulness exists. We are more than our Google calendars and inboxes.

Imagine that you are doing what you’re meant to do. Discover what’s holding you back at this panel that will explore how fear and creativity play roles in the pursuit of finding one's craft.

Our panelists have backgrounds in fashion, art, and technology, and will cover strategies so you can make time for the things that define you as a creative person...all within a world that never stops moving.
